Ghana's No. 1

West Ham beat Genk for third group win

Published on: 21 October 2021

Issa Diop scored his first goal of the season for West Ham

West Ham took a significant stride towards the Europa League knockout stages by coasting past Genk and maintaining their 100% record in Group H.

David Moyes' side comfortably sit top of the table after three games, six points clear of second-placed Dinamo Zagreb, who were beaten 2-1 at Rapid Vienna.

The Hammers had the majority of the possession but barely threatened in the first half until Craig Dawson looped home a header from Aaron Cresswell's cross on the stroke of half-time.

They took total control with two goals in the space of two minutes just before the hour mark.

Issa Diop headed in via the crossbar from another fine Cresswell delivery, while Jarrod Bowen cut in from the right and fired in shortly after, though goalkeeper Maarten Vandevoordt will be disappointed at not keeping the low drive out.

West Ham were rampant and Nikola Vlasic could have converted a quick-fire fourth, but his shot from the edge of the six-yard box was blocked.

Genk were left to rue Paul Onuachu's big chance in the first half when he beat goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to a cross, but sent his header wide of an open net.
